First, the positives:

Food was good

Most of the service was good

We had a good time

The entertainment was good



Took over 2 hours to get on the ship even after filling out everything online in advance.  

The main attraction for us, the water slides and splash pad was broken for the entire time 

The ship is not well cared for.  There is more vibration throughout the ship than any ship I've been on- to the point where it knocked glasses off the dining table.  It's just looking worn overall as well.

It was very hard to manage my food allergy on board.

Needed some more, especially for families and for things to be earlier in the evening.

Not much to do there unless you take an excursion or a 30 minute taxi ride to the beach
